Download WLAN TP-LINK TD-W8970B Firmware Router. Something complicated setup, but otherwise fully functional! Two wireless routers landed in Review 8/2014 Stiftung Warentest in second place out of seven models with ADSL modem. In addition to the piece of equipment from Netgear, it also brought the TP-LINK TD-W8970B with a score of 2.5 on a good overall result. For its first class transfer properties via LAN, the router even got a very clear \”Very good\” in the test and also in the category Security experts had no complaints just little things.
With the manual and the general handling one, however, was only average satisfaction. Even when power consumption one would have liked a bit more fuel economy. From the buyers there were on average 4.3 out of five stars achievable. While we here at the speeds and the prize money could well make friends, to the somewhat complex set-up procedures was critical here.
The TP-LINK TD-W8970B is unfortunately only designed for the 2.4 GHz band, but this was at least happy to accept the report of the end user. For the cheap wireless router however has four Gigabit LAN ports, wireless guest access as well as a media server for printer and USB hard drives. Equipped with a telephone system, voice mail and fax however, remains the only winner in the test subject.
Setting proved for some users but not quite so simple. Beginners should therefore deal before first use very closely with the instruction manual, or if necessary consult another person with certain skills. Under optimal conditions, it should bring the TP-LINK TD-W8970B on wireless speeds of up to 300 megabits per second. The very good range was quite positive score in the test report.
Of course, the Stiftung Warentest took power consumption under the microscope. During data transfer, you came up with 7.1 watts in standby and power consumption when tested at the 6.5 watts. One option for downstream connection does not have the wireless router. Nevertheless, one can reduce the consumption costs significantly thanks to the on-off switch, for example, in their absence.
